    Hi Jake, welcome to TPF. Nice set of photos, a lot of potential. I like the car ones (esp. no. 2), although you need to watch that your skies aren't burnt out and in the second one there's a massive hotspot on the car. I'm not normally that much of a fan of flower photos but I do like your first one, with the flowers in a line like that, it's more original than a lot of photos I see.

    Not bad. I would avoid the flare a bit (but milder flare can add to the photo) in the second car pic and I would not cut off the edges of the 2nd flower pic and would slightly offset it's composition to make it more interesting.

    yeah it is a great camera to learn on no doubt but the lack of lense changing is getting to me.

    As of now i have my eye on the nikon d60 with a 55-200mm lense for a christmas present :D

    I would like to see number four with a tighter crop, and number seven would be my favorite.
